When you work with kids, it should be more directional...they tend to think, they can hit the ball anywhere, without any thought to angle, change of angle, and speed of ball, so this system tends to help out a tad

I tend to think of it as 2 different zones..."hitting zone" as you described and "zone on the court". Zone on the court can be thought of most simply as - 1. inside the baseline and 2. behind the baseline. If you are inside the baseline and the ball is in your hitting zone, you can attack with "direction". If you are behind the baseline, "depth" of your shot should be your primary focus and "direction" becomes your secondary focus.

That's the way I think about it anyway. Good videos.

Good point. I like the zones as a starter to teach them, it gets more complicated over time

Liked the video but have 1 comment about "hitting zones". Hitting zone is only one factor as to whether you attack the ball...court position is the other. You wouldn't attack a ball that is to your forehand "in the zone" if you were 10 feet behind the baseline.
